We've all known for some time now that the Rolling Stones would be celebrating their 50th anniversary as the world's baddest rock group with a select handful of shows this year, and the rumors were flying hot and heavy that Brooklyn's spiffy new Barclays Center would be the lucky venue on this side of the Atlantic. Alas, Brooklynites, turns out you won't be hosting Mick, Keith, Ron and Charlie after all: This morning we learned that the Rolling Stones are coming to the Prudential Center in Newark for two concerts on December 13 and 15—the stateside complement to their London gigs on November 25 and 29.
Still, you know these will be concerts to remember…and, as the song goes, this could be the last time. Tickets for the Newark dates, ranging in price from $95 for the nosebleeds to $750 for the premium seats, will go on sale at noon on Friday, October 26 via Ticketmaster…so you've got that long to sell plasma or whatever else it is you'll need to do.
